Costs of running a Flymo robot mower

One inevitable cost of owning a lawnmower is the cost of power used to run the lawn mower. This is because robotic mowers are cordless and they use battery to function. These batteries need charging regularly. Due to the nature of the mowers, the mower automatically returns to its charging station when its battery is running low.

The maintenance of the Flymo robotic mower is another cost. The mower blades need to be replaced quarterly when cutting lawns greater than 300m2. The blades are to be changed less frequently when used on lawns smaller than this.

The longevity of the blades is also dependent on the type of soil and grass of your lawn.

Today’s review will focus on four robotic mowers from Flymo; Flymo 1200R, Flymo Easilife 200, Flymo Easilife 350 and the Flymo Easilife 500.

  • The charger of the lawn mower can be placed at any position on the lawn and the mower automatically goes to the port to charge when the battery is low.
  • The lawn sense mechanically optimizes the cutting plan to the climate and lawn growth conditions, and it detects when it is too chilly to function – this prevents any damage to both the lawn and the mower.

Benefits of the Flymo robotic lawn mower

  • Convenience: once installed, the Flymo robot lawn mower cuts your grass automatically without any active human interference. You have lots of time to yourself and that time can be used in doing other things while your auto lawn mower does your lawn for you.
  • Healthy lawn: as earlier said, the grass clippings serves as a source of natural manure. This enriches the soil thereby producing healthy grasses and automatically a healthy lawn.
  • Safety: robotic lawn mowers use tiny blades unlike the traditional lawn mowers with large blades. The Flymo robot mowers are no exceptions, the blades are enclosed under the mower and have sensors that detects when they are lifted. These sensors cause the blades to stop automatically. When not in use, the mowers stay in the dock at the edge of the lawn.
  • Maintenance: the mower blades don’t need occasional maintenance. The battery lasts well and the blades are inexpensive.
  • The Flymo robotic mower is environment friendly, as it does not pollute the environment with fumes or exhaust.
